The terms "Hearth Vault" is used to discribe a fortified area, usuall with cliffs/islands/swarmps to hide your HFs if you have done some criminal acts.
It is usually foritied to make it very annoying/diificult to Ram into, like extrememly long walls built along 2 narrow cliff face on a mountain or making it so that buildign a ram outside would leave it vunerable (no room to with it with paliside).
If one is build without a poisible placement for a Ram, then its an Impassable Vault and Jorb will nuke it.
